I always suspected Neil Young (nee "Yong"?) was Korean.

:D Thanks for filling in guys! I was sure there were more, but they weren't coming to mind.

As seen in the verses to 2NE1's Fire - "I want to go go go go go crazy/I want to run run run run run faster" - this seems to be a signifier for racing thoughts, which some songwriters will reuse in their tragic downtempo songs, implicitly linking the two together.

I love living in Korea.

I fucking hate Kpop with the fire of 10,000 suns.
